Know your rights as a carer

Carers Rights Guide

Carers UK have created a guide to carers rights that gives a full picture of the practical and financial support available to carers.

The guide includes:

Benefits: an overview of which benefits you or the person you can for may be entitled to and information about how to get a benefits check.

Other financial help: including help with council tax, fuel costs, pensions and health costs.

Practical help: including community care assessment, carer’s assessment and direct payments.

Technology: information about health and care technology that could make life easier for you and the person you care for.

Your workplace: your rights at work, from flexible working and parental leave to protection from discrimination.

Please visit the Carers UK website to get your copy of their ‘carers rights guide’.
